If you are looking for a pokie that gives you big payouts, innovative gameplay and beautiful graphics, look no further. Gonzo’s Quest is an absolute classic online pokie from those wizards at Netent.
Gonzo’s Quest has some unique gameplay features:
- Replacing the traditional reel spin, the game introduces the Avalanche feature whereby symbols fall into place in the reels
- Winning symbols disappear to make way for new symbols
- This way you can get several winning combinations on the same spin
- With every winning combination the multiplier increases, up to a maximum of x5 in the base game
- As long as you keep winning you will get the multiplier
Gonzo’s Quest theme is absolutely beautiful. Everything revolves around the golden riches that are hidden in the city of Eldorado, deeply secluded in the dense jungles of Peru.
It is up to you to find these treasures and return a rich and famous explorer. Of course, you will not have to go through these turmoils alone. Good old lovable Gonzo is here to help you in your quest and will motivate, amuse and activate you where needed.
Normally I am not a big fan of “funny” side characters in pokies as they tend to break the flow of the game and usually get annoying real fast. But Gonzo is different. He is really rooting for you and will get you to smile every once in a while with his playful antics. The way his shadow walks into the sunset in slow motion after a bonus round has been triggered gets me every time. Gonzo, you are a true friend.
But enough of the flattery. Back to the game. What is the bonus feature like?
Bonus feature Gonzo’s Quest pokie
3 or more Free Fall symbols (including wilds) trigger the Free Fall bonus: at least 10 free spins. That is not all, though. Multipliers are boosted to x3, x6, x9 and even up to a staggering x15 in the bonus feature.
If you are able to get multiple winning combinations in one spin, the potential is there for super big wins.
An added plus is that retriggers seem to happen frequently in the bonus game, giving you even more chances of a very nice payout.
Our verdict: a classic online pokie!
Gonzo’s Quest is a true classic pokie from Netent and a must go to pokie at least once a week for me. Although the bonus is quite hard to trigger it is a very real scenario that one sole bonus round will turn a losing session into a winning session. And then some.
Graphics and sound are also top notch and really fit the explorer / Aztec theme of the game. Definitely one of Netent’s best pokies, it has been copied numerous times but never rivalled.
The extended gameplay and surprise elements of the Avalanche feature and the Free Fall feature ensure an unforgettable player experience.
Gonzo’s Quest comes highly recommended with a score of 4.5 stars out of 5 to show for it.
